    Where it came from: they found a natural aperture to the Beneath or trailed another race's exploration/raiding party.
    Then they scavenged or bartered for the tech. They might know enough to replicate it in limited quantities, even if they don't know how it works....

    The most simple answer is - they migrate. As true immortals with powers, they can migrate fairly far. Their diaspora started thousands of years ago, giving them even more time to spread.

    As for why?
    * Needs of their Cult.
    * In pursuit of a Relic.
    * In pursuit of a personal project.
    * Dictates of their Judge (or what think is the dictates of their Judge).
    * To escape (political heat, memories of the area, or just needing a change in scenery).
    * Any other weird crap Fate/the ST can come up with....

  • Sure. Have specifically appropriate materials (or pieces of Infrastructure) wave the Willpower cost. They can spend WP to force it, or get the right materials.

    You might also speed up One Shot creation so they can be created on the fly for a WP point. (Though I could be misremembering stuff on this point.)...

  • Can easily see an Entitlement of the Gunslinger. And goblins a plenty with all the various weird local beasties and mythological beings.

    I can easily see Seer Railroad Barons, though. Opposed by the newly formed Free Council that just wants to be left alone on their frontier....

    All they need is to occasionally happen upon or have the right sort of scavenged tech/creatures/knowledge from prior explorations in the Beneath.

    It's all fun and games until the "pathetic" researchers press the wrong input on the Geodic super-weapon, or un-cage an insane rival's hunter-killer creation....

  • Liking it so far.

    Did you get to Bleak Oubilette yet? It can easily be modified to be based/focused on a seal (like the Focus of a Nest, but a lock to the Focus's anchor)....

    So, The Cheiron Group or Task Force: Valkyrie? :-p

    What about a group interested in Endless psychic phenomena (Psi?), or archeological research into the Geodics, or secretly propped up by other races of the Beneath, or pursuing terraforming and/or colonization of the Beneath?...

  • Heck, they may even recruit a few. Baring intentions and their Endowment that let them get away with it, there was little surface difference between them.

    Though from solely the Hunter-book perspective, since Darkened and Mnemosyne are both Infiltrators, as far as other Hunters (and the book) are concerned, they actually have Infiltrators in their ranks as accepted members....

    What about custom built/designed/bred creatures acting as psychic repeaters, routers, etc.? Established hubs could even be Province bonuses.

    As for plots:
    Someone "stole" a network bug that was about to relay your (or your Ally's) declaration of war. Without prior statement, there is the risk of Monarch faux pas (and social alienation).
    A rival is seeding your territory with Spam Drones, irritating you and disrupting your Colony's organization. Crush the vermin and find out who did it.
    One of your Allies has gone dark - communication has stopped and few...

  • I think failure is the expectation with any Hunter that has ambitious end goals. Realistically, none of them has any chance of affecting sweeping change - but they can affect the Here and Now.

    I just think there isn't much range of character types to play that haven't already been covered.



    You would probably find a mix of either. Yeah long term containment over temporary dispersal is good, but sometimes you need to stop harm now and find a use for it later.

    I can send a list of what I have written on the Endowment so far, once I get to a PC...

  • So if some Title is the collateral for another Title, what happens when they lose the collateral? Could you trigger a domino effect of default and render a True Fae "naked" by taking out the right Title?...

  • And that's fine. We don't need to trim anything (no word-count limits - yay!), so they are fine.

    Though I could point out that Princesses behavior may seem like cult-ish brainwashing from far enough outside, and the Werewolf focus limiting Talbot is exactly what I was referring to.

    Some more differentiation (on how a member would play) would be nice, but not needed....

    I think, despite Beast being the "Crossover Game", a few settings that focus primarily/exclusively on Beast material and elements would enhance the game-line.

  • I'm stalled on actually writing anything substantial. I have ideas, but I can't put them to words. If someone wants to handle the fluff and just use the Endowment I wrote, that would be great.



    I just don't see any great need for them? The Talbot group and Habibti Ma both cover what they do conceptually, they just are limited by their Splat-focus. It's fine for including them, it is just if they need to get trimmed, they could be....

    I think a Ravenloft-style one would be fitting (and similar to this). Beasts-as-Darklords would be fairly easy to pull off in all its Gothic glory.


    I think you could reference the group or universal aspect of the Primordial Dream for a multiversal setting as well - multiple Earths (or even other worlds) all sharing the same Primordial Dream. Explorers and Invaders from other worlds using Chambers are a means of travel... and Beasts acting as a territorial defensive system....
